This 2 up and 1 down configuration keeps all the toms within easy reach, yet still delivers a highly versatile sound because of its standard drum depths. The unique Maple and Walnut shell composition coupled with the SONIClear™ bearing edge results in clear and focused rack toms, fat and dense floor toms, and bass drums with a balance of punch and boom.
The Mapex Drum Company has taken the next step in the evolution of professional drum sets, Saturn V. Adding the SONIClear bearing edge to these drums clearly enhances the unmistakable sound and increases the tuning range of the Saturn’s Maple and Walnut hybrid shell. This new bearing edge eliminates the age-old problem of rack toms not resonating to their full potential after they're mounted on a stand. The tom holder also dramatically increases sustain and fullness of tone by preserving vibration in the head and shell and preventing energy transfer to the hardware. The Saturn V features Mapex 6-Ply snares and toms, and 8-ply bass drums constructed of North American maple and walnut hybrid shells. These shells are crowned with Remo Emperor clear batter drumheads, and Remo P3 Batter bass drumheads so they will be ready to rock right out of the box. You may have a hard time deciding on your favorite finish. And even if you can, you may not be sure whether you want to play them…or just stare at them.
The new Mapex' Saturn V Drum Kits are the defined by perfection, performance and professionalism. The Saturn shell is a very popular choice for a large number of pro drummers around the world and now, featuring the well-known SONIClear Bearing Edge Technology, these drum kits are of an unparalleled quality and performance. The SONIClear Bearing Edge allows the head to make better contact with the shell and provides a stronger fundamental pitch and an enhanced tuning range and can be found on any Saturn V shells.
The Saturn V Sub Wave 4-piece drum kit from Mapex comes fitted with a deep 20" bass drum which can be considered the beating heart of the kit. Also, the Saturn V Sub Wave Drum Kit features the SONIClear Tom Suspension System which increases the overall resonance and preserves the vibration in the heads and the shell.
